Two Christmas Mysteries

 
What Mary Alice is reading:
Christmas Mourning ($7.99) by Margaret Maron There is something special about a Christmas mystery and by the hand of Margaret Maron it is a real gift. Christmas Mourning, 16th in the Deborah Knott series, brings Judge Deborah Knott and her sprawling Southern family together again, but the death of a young cheerleader in a car crash dims the lights. It was no accident and the answers can only be found after the teens and Aunt Deborah get together before the holiday and anniversary of the talented sleuth. Not to be missed…I would see that this is under the tree for your favorite reader.

Also available as an eBook

What Richard is reading:
Twelve Drummers Drumming ($24) by C.C. Benison I don't think we could have dreamed up a more perfect Christmas mystery than Twelve Drummers Drumming by C.C. Benison (remember her from the Jane Bee mysteries?). We've got the village of Thornford Regis, we've got a vicar and sleuth named Father Christmas who's a single parent with a nine year old daughter and we've got a murder victim—the daughter of the choir director. Just a perfect treat for the season. Let's hope they do one of these every Christmas.
